Leila was born and raised in Cali, Colombia. She studied Theater and Modern Dance and spent years on stage.
It wasn’t until Leila was stuck with wedding dress alterations that made her clutch her bouquet right against her poorly fitted bodice, that her curiosity for sewing began and she later turned to fitting garments.
After 7 years of doing alterations and making custom garments for herself and an exclusive client pool, she worked for Erin Young Designs in Indianapolis, IN.
In the last 3 years, Leila has honed her skills for tailoring curvy and plus-size women. Fit is her passion and she is dedicated to the happiness of her brides.
